    No, the DS's tiny resolution is going to look like shit stretched on the DSi XL's screen. This new DS is really only intended for old people who can't see very well.

    Actually it was said that this came because of Internet browsing users and ebook readers who were complaining about how tiny the screen was for any usage in that manner.

    Btw, I haven't bought a DSi mostly because it felt like a small niche update and I don't think this style is going to last very long.

    Small note:

    It is not called the DSi XL it is called the DSi LL (I Have no IDEA why...)

    I don't regret it only because there is better anti piracy on the new one. Crack it and I may buy it,depending if the games don't look bad stretched.

    I haven't bought a DSi, and not only have I not bought it yet, but I'm not planning on it either, as I don't like anything about the DSi, not the colors, the cameras or the nonglossyness.

    I do like the huge screens on the new one though, but it also means everything is going to look more pixelated.

    I might get the new one if 1 of 2 things happen:
    1. iPlayer gets commercial ROM support so I can play my DS and GBA roms on it.
    2. Nintendo release GBA games on DSi VC, and it becomes hackable.

    But after seeing comparison shots of the old and new DSi, it looks like it's going to be a beast [​IMG]

    I regret getting the DSi as it is, such a piece of crap.
    No decent DSiWare, so it's in the closet [​IMG]
    I certainly will not get the LX one, but will get the DS 2 or an upgrade to the current DS that requires the new handheld to play.

    i dont regret getting the dsi
    i bet the streched screen is only going to be used for dsi exclusive features and not ds games since it'ss look really messed up
    it might just cut the side of the screen when playing a nds game or maybe not

    I don't have a DSi yet, but if I had one I wouldn't regret buying it. The DSi XL adds nothing at all if you can use the currect screens fine. Oh yeah, the battery is slightly better, but you pay a bit more for the DSi XL too, plus it looks worse.

    I'm not planning on buying the DSi yet. As of now there are no must-have DSi only titles. If 2010 brings us a few good exclusives I might buy the DSi (not the XL though). But I'll probably just wait for the DS2 to launch. By that time the DSi exclusives will be a bit cheaper, so I can play them for a good price. It also means I don't have to buy crappy launch titles, I can wait until the DS2 shows its real power.

    So... yeah.

    You either dont have a DSi,or you are trying to be cool. Kind of like them 360 or PS3 fan boys who say "If I got a free PS3/360 I would throw it out because PS3/360 is so much better" No one would really do that,they would sell before stocking in the closet... And if you have a DS lite/phat and a DSi you would play the DSi unless you wanted to play GBA games.

    That doesn't make any sense at all.

    Far as I'm concerned, I'll wait like i've always had and see what comes of it. If it really is any good at all then maybe. Otherwise speculation is useless.

    If the new console has better graphics or anything, that'll probably mean there will be games for only that system, so yeah I'll probably buy it if that happens.

    If not though, I don't regret anything ^.^

    I like how it says "I havent bought a DSi yet"... I am never buying a DSi [​IMG] I don't wish to support Nintendo anymore with their new anti piracy regime. £££ $$$ And their milking of the current technology just because the kiddies demand new revisions of their technology everytime a new version comes out that their friends have but they don't have so they kick and scream to their parents which is gold for Nintendo. Sorry to punch a hole in your balloon but Nintendo will just keep milking it and won't even bother bringing DS2 anytime soon if this old tech keeps selling like it does. Also sorry went a bit off topic [​IMG]

    The clothing size for "extra large" in Japan is LL.

    For the US and EUR regions, it will be named XL.
